It?s your fast-track guide through the intricate process of starting your own venture/initiative.

The overarching aim is to help nurture innovative and prosperous new ventures with responsible leaders who appreciate the demands of multiple stakeholders.

The MSc in Entrepreneurship places emphasis on learning through experience, and in our classes you will be encouraged to use reflection on doing as a form of learning.
